(AllHipHop News) Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams has faced a ton of negative headlines in recent months. Birdman is currently facing lawsuits from Jas Prince and two of his original artists Lil Wayne and Turk, but the Rich Gang leader built a new coalition with “Lifestyle” collaborators Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug.

RHQ and Thug participated in the video documentary series Noisey Atlanta. During the eighth episode, Quan spoke on his connection with Birdman.
“I’m just glad Birdman reached out to me to be part of Rich Gang,” said Rich Homie. “He’s been in the game – what, 25 plus years? It’s great to work with Birdman. He just brings a lot of energy.”
Neither Rich Homie or Young Thug are officially signed to Cash Money, but their affiliation with the label has ignited rumors Wayne’s issues with Birdman partially stem from the Atlanta rappers becoming extended members of the CMB family. However, Quan has also expressed he is ready to take a break from Rich Gang.
“I stepped away from the Rich Gang situation to focus on Quan because the fans want Quan back,” he told Hot 107.9 last month.
